It's been a rainy a week in Ithaca, but the hawk nestlings don't have to worry! Even though they have grown and aren't quite as easy to sit on as when they were small, Big Red makes sure all three are under her body as she shelters them from a 30 minute downpour. Watch the hawks live at http://allaboutbirds.org/cornellhawks.
